Beresford School District Superintendent Brian Field stated the following in support of the Watchdog Legacy Project.

“During the past two and one-half years, the Beresford School District, its school board, and members of two planning committees have met, researched, toured facilities, and studied the needs for school and community programming.  Throughout their study, dialogue, and shared input, the Watchdog Legacy Project was developed and refined.  We have shared this information at school board meetings, on the District and Watchdog Legacy Project webpages, through social media on Twitter and Facebook, at the May 12 and September 10 community presentations, and in a series of articles that were featured this summer in the Beresford Republic.  The Watchdog Legacy Project meets our tradition of school and community pride and the long-standing needs of our school district and community while emphasizing Beresford School District’s four Pillars of Academics/Achievement, Fine Arts, Athletics, and Servant Leadership.”

“The Watchdog Legacy Project will:  1) serve as a tremendous “educational resource” for our students, which will expand what our students are able to do academically and through their participation in school-sponsored co-curricular activities; 2) allow our staff the opportunity to take our academic and our co-curricular activity programs to another level; and 3) serve as an outstanding “community resource” by engaging our stakeholders and allowing them access to and use of our outstanding facilities for school and community programming.  The Watchdog Legacy Project will make a difference in the lives of our children, our school, and our community that will leave a legacy for generations.”
